Hi! I'm a long-time Park Slope resident, and I love living in this neighborhood. Watch here and I'll be adding more about why. To quote a much more famous Brooklynite, Walt Whitman:
"This is what you should do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God."
-- Preface to the first edition of Leaves of Grass (1855)
OK, we might use different language today. But clearly Brooklyn has been a very cool place for a long time, despite what some recent converts priced out of Manhattan might think.
